Honours shared on Tayside

These Tayside rivals couldn't be separated as St Johnstone and Dundee United played out a scoreless draw at McDiarmid Park.

Midfielder John Rankin struck an early shot wide for the visitors who were without injured forward Gary Mackay-Steven.

But fellow striker Johnny Russell was certainly there and clearly evident as he allowed Willo Flood to drill the wrong side of the post, while goalkeeper Radoslaw Cierniak was forced to parry from on loan Peter Pawlett at the opposite end.

Back came the visitors with Stuart Armstrong driving at home keeper Alan Mannus following a good break, although both Pawlett and Liam Craig were wide as the hosts stepped it up with the interval fast approaching.

The second period began at a more measured tempo but it didn't actually result in a flurry of opportunities, even though Gregory Tade should perhaps have done better for the home side from close-range when being supplied by Murray Davidson.

Saints had introduced substitute Nigel Hasselbaink and he was later thwarted by Cierniak before Rowan Vine hoisted over the rebound as neither side could find a winner.
